8 Sea Hunt(L1) 120 Saez x-x-x Goldberg 6-1

Nauset Beach displayed improved speed in last and now moves to turf with solid grass pedigree. All Tied Up adds blinkers, drops and worked three times since non-threatening eighth in debut; wakeup potential.

8 Hidden Warrior(L) 123 Velasquez 6-x-x Rice 5-1

Easy Street compiled stamina-building work tab for first start in 435 days; primed and ready. Thnxtomyuncle bounced in last after three fast-figured seconds in a row; very dangerous. One Red Cat tallied swift number when a clear-cut second in the mud last time; be no surprise.

14 Groupthink(L) 120 Castellano 2-x-x Brown 5-2

15 Empire Dreams 120 No Rider 2-4-x Albertrani 7-2

Forever Utopia made menacing middle move after slow getaway in first start; three tight works in the interim seals the deal. Deceived, from a dam that's produced two turf winners, made sustained rally when third in budding key race debut on dirt; very dangerous. Carolinian moves to grass after game placing in last; logical, short-priced player.

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $50,000.

1a a-Marilyn's Guy(L) 120 No Rider 3-3-5 Rodriguez 5-1

Situational Ethics took backward step in last after determined win in prior; rebounds. Viscount owns very fast final numbers but has been sidelined for 515 days; must take the good with the bad. Malibu Way owns solid late pace numbers on best efforts.

9 Frostys Whirl(L) 112 Franco 1-6-x Simon 30-1

15 Lily Lynn(L) 120 Ortiz 4-3-1 Rodriguez 7-2

16 Seven Dreams(L) 117 No Rider 6-6-4 Araya 12-1

Queen Mercury returns to turf after tallying improved internal numbers in last; breakthrough predicted. Villanella logged both career wins on Belmont grass, a pair of bullet works since last start and should pack amplified kick with turnback to 6 furlongs; very playable. Score Boyera failed to beat a horse in last but packs potent late wallop on best. Grace and Courage can prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead; worth long look. Greatest Dream is a last-race winner that's likely to be overlooked in the wagering; very interesting.
